Doctoral Candidate Margaret Montgomery has been awarded the 2020 College of Arts & Sciences Outstanding Teaching by a Doctoral Student Award. The award is bestowed by a college-wide committee charged with considering recommendations by students and faculty and it includes a monetary prize. Montgomery’s name will be forwarded to the university-wide competition.
Montgomery is advised by Drs. Andrew Huebner and Holly Grout. Her dissertation, ““Trading Silk for Khaki: The Last Years of the Women’s Army Corps and the Contest Over Soldier Womanhood, 1963-1978,” explores how the US Army reconciled the concept of the woman soldier in the last two decades of the Women’s Army Corps’ existence and how that concept was both reified and challenged by women in uniform as well as by American society as a whole during the turbulent 1960s and 70s.
She has taught seven classes as an instructor of record for the Department of History and served as a graduate teaching assistant in thirteen other courses.
Great job Margaret!
